NOTD OPI Big Apple Red

Hi everyone,

Red nails are such a classic look and for me, OPI Big Apple Red is just the perfect shade. It’s a bright, pillar box red colour and it just makes me feel so glamourous and polished every time I wear it. I like wearing the gel version where possible to get that extra shine or adding a bit of sparkle with some glitter on an accent finger. I think the gold goes really well, especially if you’re heading on a night out or somewhere special.

I have not worn red nails for quite a long time and had forgotten how much I like them. In winter I tend to stick to darker reds or purples so I have been trying to branch out into some brighter options recently. That's what has lead me to rediscovering my love of a red manicure and today's post. I also love teaming them with a bright red lipstick such as MaxFactor’s Cherry Kiss or Rimmel Kate Moss 110 for added glamour!

What’s your favourite nail and lip combo? Do you often wear red?

Thanks for reading,

Hannah xx


  1. You know what? I have never tried matching my lips and nails together! Thanks for the idea, Hannah, I'll try it next time and I also love the gold glitter on red manicure, will try that too.

    1. I love matching my nails and lips, it just makes me feel put together but it's not something I could do every day! x

  2. This bold red shade looks utterly beautiful on you nails and the addition of gold glitter is just perfect!

  3. I don't always wear red although I should more often :) I like reds with a little more brown to them. Kat Von D's Nosferatu is my personal favorite red lipstick:)

    1. Ooh that lipstick sounds nice, I'll have to keep an eye out for it as I've never tried any by Kat Von D :) x
